This cartoon is really a homage to Pharyngula, the best science blog on the tubes. If it is not on your favorites list, you might as well throw your computer away.
I did a cartoon last week that PZ Myers posted at Pharyngula, driving hits at Hypnocrites through the roof (for me, that is). I wanted to thank him with something he might find entertaining, and cephalapods are his thing. But what to draw? What to draw?
Then, yesterday, Dick Cheney went off on another of his tirades. The idea that the man would even come out of hiding, much less attack the opinion of the vast majority of this great nation, is astounding, given recent developments. The Libby trial proved far more than a few lies. It proved that Dick Cheney is the Octopus of Evil, with tentacles in every filthy crack and dirty cranny. He is the eight-armed puppeteer of evil, the maestro conducting the slurs and slanders, the kidnaps and tortures, the wars and crimes.
This honorable creature
is Octopus vulgaris, but there is nothing vulgar about it.
This disgusting creature
is Octopus REALLY vulgaris, and his vulgarity will slime our history for ages.
